We have three levels of integration:
A tar ball is unpacked on the ESXi host server and the system administrator issues erasure commands with the CLI through SSH to securely erase specific virtual machines.
Our VIB installation package is installed on all of the ESXi host servers and called into action by a management portal. This portal can be the vCloud Director or any management tool which has the ability to send XML payload requests to the ESXi host servers. This integration method is for full automation and erasure of all virtual machines which are selected for erasure on the portal interface.
By connecting vCenter Server with vRealize Orchestrator and installing a few custom Blancco workflows, virtual machines can be right-clicked in the vSphere Web Client (vCenter Server) user interface and securely erased by choosing the Blancco workflow directly in the UI.
